Intimate Sunshine Coast Hinterlands Wedding Day with Australian Style

Welcome to an intimate wedding day in the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands that can truly be called epic! Kimberly and Anthony’s love story began over ten years ago, when they met as both were embarking on their med school journeys. A decade and two doctorate degrees later, the pair tied the knot in a breathtaking wedding day at Maleny Manor in Queensland. Their stunning portraits by Luke Middlemiss Photography are filled with lush garden flowers, incredible Sunshine Coast views, and incredible love!

Queensland is one of many areas of Australia devastated by the bushfires – please consider donating in aid of the courageous firefighters, wildlife rescue efforts, and those who have lost their homes in the fires:

Kimberley found her dream wedding dress from Australian designer, Made With Love Bridal. The Sienna dress, with a fitted crepe skirt and sheer beaded top, looked dazzling on the stunning bride!
